5-Minute Creamy Biscoff Overnight Oats Recipe

Biscoff has easily worked its way into the hearts of vegans everywhere with sweet treats like Biscoff brownies, Biscoff blondies, and Biscoff cake with Biscoff buttercream frosting, but we’ve found a way to sneak it into our breakfasts now, and there’s no going back! If there’s anything that will put a little more pep in your step each morning, it’s waking up to the rich, sweet, caramelized, brown sugar and cinnamon-spiced flavors of these Biscoff overnight oats.

Vegan overnight oats are already an inexpensive, low-effort, filling, nutritious, and delicious make-ahead breakfast that comes together in minutes, and now they get to taste like Biscoff cookies, too?! Plus, unlike regular oatmeal, they require no cooking (or morning effort!). Instead, the oats are soaked overnight to naturally soften. In the morning, give them a big stir and tuck in.

Best of all, cookie butter overnight oats are lovely and creamy, but this recipe is naturally dairy-free and vegan and can easily be adapted to gluten-free. Plus, they’re really customizable with your choice of add-ins and toppings.

The Ingredients and Substitutes

ingredients for Biscoff Overnight Oats measured out
  • Oats: Use regular or certified gluten-free old-fashioned oats (rolled oats) for a chewy yet tender consistency. Instant oats yield more mushy results. Don’t use steel-cut oats.
  • Dairy-free Milk: Use your favorite unsweetened dairy-free milk. E.g., oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk. Alternatively, use plain water for a lighter version.
  • Biscoff cookie butter: We used Lotus Biscoff cookie butter, but another vegan cookie butter will work just as well. It’s on Amazon, but I usually get it cheapest at Walmart.
  • Biscoff cookies: For extra texture – or other Speculoos cookies. You can get them here.

Biscoff Oats Topping Ideas

  • Sliced banana
  • Berries (like raspberries, blueberries, chopped strawberries)
  • Apples or pear (sliced or diced)
  • Dairy-free chocolate chips/ chunks (dark chocolate for antioxidants!)
  • Chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, or walnuts) for crunch, protein, and healthy fats
  • Cinnamon (just a sprinkle for added warmth)
  • Shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • A dollop of dairy-free Greek yogurt or coconut whipped cream
  • Additional Biscoff and Biscoff cookies

What Could I Add to Overnight Biscoff Oats?

  • Dairy-free yogurt: For creamier vegan Biscoff overnight oats, replace ¼-⅓ cup of plant milk with plain dairy-free yogurt. E.g., oat, soy, almond, or coconut yogurt.
  • Chia seeds: Add 1 tablespoon for protein and omega fatty acids.
  • Sweetener: If you’ve got a sweet tooth, increase sweetness with maple syrup, agave, or sugar-free sweetener like Stevia/erythritol.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt can balance and enhance all the flavors in the Biscoff oats.
  • Vanilla extract: Add just ¼-½ tsp natural vanilla for delicious, warm flavor depth.
  • Cinnamon: Enhance the already warm spiced flavor with even more cinnamon (and, optionally, a dash of nutmeg).
  • Caramel: Add a drizzle of our healthy vegan date caramel or your favorite caramel sauce for more of a dessert-like treat.
  • Protein powder: Make delicious Biscoff protein overnight oats with ½ a scoop of your favorite unflavored or vanilla protein powder. You may need more plant-based milk.
  • Coffee: Add about a teaspoon of instant coffee powder.

How to Make Biscoff Overnight Oats?

Keep scrolling to the recipe card for the complete list of ingredients and recipe instructions.

  • 1) Place the oats, Biscoff cookie butter, and plant-based milk in a mason jar or glass.

Optionally, heat the Biscoff cookie butter for 20-30 seconds to drizzle inside the empty jar/glass for better aesthetics.

  • 2) Then, either add a lid and shake it (or stir with a spoon) until thoroughly mixed.
  • 3) Top with a crushed Biscoff cookie, cover with a lid or plastic wrap, and leave to chill in the refrigerator overnight (or for a minimum of 3 hours).

At the 3-hour point, the oats will still be fairly chewy and firm. The longer they soak, the softer they become.

  • 4) Before serving, add more plant-based milk if desired and optionally top with your favorite toppings – we used sliced banana, vegan chocolate chips, and a crumbled Biscoff cookie. 

FAQs

Can I make gluten-free overnight oats with Biscoff?

Lotus Biscoff (both the cookies and spread) aren’t gluten-free. However, if you use gluten-free cookie butter (like the one from Trader Joe’s) and Speculoos cookies with certified gluten-free oats, it’ll be GF.

What are the benefits of overnight oats vs. cooked?

If we’re being honest, the biggest benefit of overnight oats is not having to spend any time preparing them in the morning. You can whip up a batch in 10 minutes on a Sunday evening and grab them straight from the fridge every morning.

Their chilled temperature makes them great for the warmer months and more portable. More than that, though, the low and slow soaking of the oats helps to reduce their phytic acid content and makes them easier to digest, allowing more nutrient absorption. They retain more nutrients than boiled oats, too.

Are Lotus overnight oats healthy?

Not only are oats packed with soluble fiber to help you feel fuller for longer, but they’re packed with several vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that combine to provide gut-friendly prebiotics, regulate blood sugar levels, support digestive health, provide an energy boost, and more.

All the above makes us feel a lot better about the fact that Lotus Biscoff is pretty much a nutritional dud (I mean, it’s cookies made into a peanut-butter-like spread, what did you expect?) – it tastes great, though, and in the portion size in this Biscoff overnight oats recipe, we’re more than happy to enjoy it 1-2 times a week.

Pro Recipe Tips

  • Use a wide-mouth jar/cup: It makes stirring and eating directly from the jar easier.
  • Adjust the consistency: If the cookie butter overnight oats are too thick, add an extra splash of plant-based milk or water when serving. If they’re too thin, add a sprinkle of oats (they’ll be chewy) or some chia seeds and wait a few minutes.
  • Adjust the creaminess: Adjust the creaminess based on the type of plant-based milk you use and whether you choose to add vegan yogurt.
  • For ‘chewier’ overnight oats: Either soak them for less time (like 3-5 hours) and/or use less liquid in the recipe.
  • For warm Biscoff oats: Microwave the Biscoff overnight oats in 20-second increments until warm ‘Biscoff oatmeal’, adding any toppings afterward.

How to Store Lotus Biscoff Overnight Oats

Once assembled, store the Biscoff overnight oats covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. I use these glass jars for mine (as pictured above).

Give it a mix before serving, and add an extra splash of vegan milk or water if desired.
